How to Measure Your Legs for the Right Fit

Measuring for graduated support stockings is simple. Sizing for medical compression stockings is based on the circumferences of the leg. It is best to measure early in the day before swelling occurs.

Using a measuring tape, measure around the smallest part of the ankle. Tip: Measure above the round bones (malleoli) on both sides of the ankle.
Next, measure around the fullest part of your calf. 
Those measuring for thigh-length styles should also measure around the fullest part of the thigh.
Those measuring for chap or waist-length styles should measure the ankle, thigh and arounde the largest part of your hips.
